Howard Dean: Still a Scream

Democratic National Chairman Howard Dean, whose presidential campaign imploded last year after he let loose a scream while conceding defeat in the Iowa caucuses, and Sen. John Kerry (D.-Mass.), who, having defeated the hapless Dean for the Democratic nomination, went on to lose the presidential race to President Bush, reemerged last week as leading spokesmen for their party. 

Both reprised rolls they have played before:  Dean, the defeatist, and Kerry, the accuser of U.S. troops.  “The idea that the United States is going to win the war in Iraq is just plain wrong,” Dean told a San Antonio radio station.  “And there is no reason, Bob,” Kerry told host Bob Schieffer on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” “that young American soldiers need  to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the … the historical customs, religious customs. Whether you like it or not, Iraqis should be doing that.” If MoveOn.org had its way, of course, one of these men would be commander in chief today.
